I sip non-fat cappuccinos in cafes in my Kootenay Mountain hometown, while waiting for one of my four children to finish their dance, choir, soccer, curling, or music lessons. Oh, and I write.
I write here about our homeschooling, homesteading life.
I am about to release my book Homeschool Mama Self-Care book, I offer one-to-one coaching and online courses, host guests at my bed & breakfast, stare at impressionist art, listen to classical and jazz, and read like a hungry baby bird.
From mid-September to late April, I homeschool (self-directed style) three of my four children.
I spend much of my days giving writing feedback, practice French sentences and Latin verbs, and read on plate tectonics to ancient civilizations.
By February, I want to fly to a tropical location.
And by April’s end, I have decided to unschool, again.
In that unschool season, we spend more time outside.
I train and walk our Great Pyrenees puppy, Violet. I bake bread, grow a veggie, perennial and tea garden, fertilize the fruit orchard, and keep a ready supply of plum jam and homemade meals. I sell a few dozen eggs a week, thanks to the Cluckingham Palace ladies and happy Henry the 8th.
